We have to send cows about 65 miles away for about 90 days during the winter. We don’t have enough corn stalks to winter all the cows, so we sort the solid mouth (a term meaning Middle aged cows) and send them away. Hay is too expensive to feed an extra 90 days and it is very difficult to find extra stalk pasture in our area. We are very lucky that we have such a good deal to send them off and they are in great hands.
Because of last weeks snow storm (yes I’m a few days late posting this blog 🙂
we had to bring the cows home about 10 days early. When there is 10+ inches of snow on the ground it gets very difficult for the cows to find what they need to eat. So rather than worrying about them, we bring them home.
We got the cows home just before the snow hit. It was very cold unloading them.
